The crowd demanded that the Ahmadiyah followers leave the area. However, police managed to handle the situation shortly.

After 30 minutes of speech saying their disapproval against the group, the masses were disbanded.

For the time being, the local authorities are involving in a talk with the mosque’s management.

According to Hendro, 40, a board member, the mosque has been there for 24 years with 200 followers. “There hasn’t been any problem against us. It’s only a misunderstanding,” he said.
